I don’t think some of you recognize how bad it is

    This team is going to be really, really bad for a few years.

    1. We have no clue what we have with KP, but the early returns don’t look good.

    2. Maybe 1 starter on the offensive line doesn’t need to be replaced.

    3. Wideouts are ok. TE is ok.

    4. RB’s are poor, but perhaps a really good oline would help them.

    So, we need a minimum of 4 and potentially as many as 6 good starters on offense.

    1. Defensive line is old. In the next 2 years, we’ll need at least 2 starters.

    2. ILB and OLB - we need a new alpha, the Myles can become our weak ILBer. Must replace Spillane.

    3. secondary - everyone but Minka needs to go. Cam could possibly stay, but he’d be the nickel back.

    That means overall, we need 7 really good starters on D.

    That is 13 of 22 starters, including the hardest to replace, QB, to be a good team again. It is going to be YEARS before we don’t suck again. Get used to it. Hopefully we can build through the draft….

    This team will be bad unless Pickett turns into an MVP caliber QB. Mainly because Mike Tomlin is not a good coach.

    Every team has gaps and players who are just average, guys like Edmunds, Chuks etc. They definitely do need a Left Tackle and a good Corner for a start, but they have resources that they haven’t had in the past. They are likely to have a top 10 pick and three picks inside the top 50, they also have cap room and ways to clear more if needed.

    If Pickett turns out to be good they will be fine and can fill in around him, especially if they can sort out the line and find a system that lets them run the ball consistently.

    Predicting anything in the NFL beyond a year or two is difficult because there are so many variables. I can’t understand these doom and gloom predictions saying they are going to suck for years. There is just no way anybody can know that for sure right now.

    Dude we know this team needs some more talented players in certain positions but today this team played with heart and gave a gutsy performance.

    Pickett's first victory, Najee actually running with a passion, Watt back. Solid effort. Solid effort!

    So just enjoy todays victory if possible.

    I'm gonna have a victory beer now...:drinks: Or two...

    The Steelers have some solid pieces to build on but the Saints are really really awful. I'll take the win and like it.

    I agreed with all assessment except Spillane gave up every pass thrown his way.

    Yes, he is woeful, they need to get him off the field on passing downs, which was probably the plan once Kazee got in there. Minkah’s appendix had other ideas.

    They do, agree. Need LT LG etc.

    BUT a new OC N ENTIRE off staff is right there

    Scheme can help this group a ton

    Now imagine a quality LT N LG along w an actual NFL attack

    Pretty sure I saw him knock the ball out of one receiver's hands, I think it was the tight end. I thought Spillane played better than usual today and was good in run defense (see the 4th down stop).

    I almost couldn't disagree more with the vast majority of this post. I actually think this team has a ton of talent minus Oline and is in need of an upgrade at ILB. Axe the offensive coordinator, get a stud tackle and a guard, and find an ILB and this is a playoff-caliber roster IMHO.
